Thoughts On Characters Who Come Back to Life

Okay so I know that this is post is totally unrelated to anxiety or mental health, but it’s something that’s been on my mind. I’ve been thinking a lot about how when characters in a show die and then they’re brought back to life due to fans not liking that they died.

Don’t get me wrong, there have been characters that when they died, I feel the show totally went down the tubes. An example of this would be Prue in Charmed. I understand they had issues with Shannen Doherty and everything, but once they got rid of her character, I really feel the show lost its touch. Do I wish they never killed off the character? I guess. However, it’s just a show and honestly, I feel like even if you’re upset about a character dying, if the show’s still good, who cares? Let me give you an example.

Warning: If you haven’t watched up until the end of Season 4 in Arrow and you don’t want to know who dies, STOP READING! You can come back after this paragraph!

Apparently, Katie Cassidy is coming back in some form or another to the ‘DCTV Universe’ (http://moviepilot.com/posts/4010563). Now don’t get me wrong, I loved Katie Cassidy as Supernatural’s Ruby and she was okay as Laurel Lance in Arrow, but when she died in Arrow, I didn’t feel much loss. To be honest, I kind of liked that for once, a TV show killed off a semi-important character. I think that it takes guts to do this. However, now fans are complaining so they’re going to bring her back. I’m honestly hoping they don’t bring her back to Arrow. It’s not that I don’t like Katie Cassidy as an actress or Laurel as a character, I just think it’s good that a TV show killed off an important character – it shows that things happen and that life isn’t always perfect.

If you didn’t read the section above due to not seeing Arrow yet, you can come back now!

I can totally understand bringing some characters back to life. For example, Sam and Dean Winchester in Supernatural. There are tons of seasons of the fantastic show and you can’t kill off the two main characters for good (until, of course, maybe the end of the series)! Also, I have no problem with bringing characters back as cameos. For example, if a character dies, but they’re in the show as a flashback or a ‘what if they didn’t die’ episode, that’s fine. Sometimes though, I think characters should stay dead – even if it’s hard for us to let them go.

What do you guys think? Should characters who die be brought back to life?

July TV Show Photo Challenge – July 30th

Today’s challenge is saddest TV death. While there’s been characters that I miss more than the following, I found this the saddest death. Warning: If you haven’t watched up to the end of season 5 of Supernatural and don’t wish to know who dies, STOP READING!

 

The saddest TV death is… the death of Ellen and Jo in Supernatural! I felt like crying when they died. Even though they weren’t main characters, I really liked them and the scene was really touching!

Holding On To the Feeling of Progress!

This morning I succeeded at something that I haven’t really done in a long time, or at least I haven’t done it as well as I did today. It’s something that I’ve been struggling with for a while and although I did manage to kind of succeed at it a little while ago, this is the first time in a long time that I really felt like I did a good job at it. It felt wonderful to make progress and realize that I have the ability to achieve my goals.

I just recently went to my therapist’s and he was saying how I have to realize that when I make progress and succeed at something that it’s not just luck. I wasn’t lucky today when I accomplished my goal, but rather I accomplished my goal because I am capable of making progress and facing my fears. I am stronger than my anxiety.

I think that it’s so easy (especially in times of struggling), to forget just how strong we are. I know that for me, it’s almost become habit to worry about things, to feel like I can’t do certain things. However, I have the ability to succeed and I’ve proven that to myself more than just once. It just takes consistent effort and practice to continue to show myself that I can get through my anxiety and overcome my obstacles.

It’s so important that when we succeed and make progress, that we hold on to the amazing feeling that achieving our goals provides. Achieving our goals proves to us that we are capable of making progress. Please realize that when you succeed at something, that it’s not just luck, but rather it’s your hard work paying off!
